Both the Guadalquivir River, one of the longest rivers in Spain, and the Guadiana River, rising in the Cuenca mountains, flow through the historic region of Andalusia passing through Spain’s countryside, with the Guadalquivir finally emptying into the Gulf of Cadiz near Sanlucar de Barrameda in the Atlantic Ocean. The Guadiana river flows through south-central Spain, La Serena and La Siberia and into the south eastern region of Portugal forming a natural boundary with Portugal in the beautiful region of La Raya. Both rivers, during their journeys through Spain have created rich natural environments which are amongst the best in Europe.
Mountainous regions are covered in forests of pine and oak, with areas given over to horticulture and agriculture with cereal crops, cotton fields, vines and olive groves in abundance and healthy market towns decorating the plains. Many beautiful towns, quaint villages and vibrant cities grace the banks of the Guadalquivir and Guadiana Rivers. One of the largest historical cities in Europe, on the banks of the Guadalquivir, boasting a Moorish heritage is Seville. This vibrant city has so much to do, so much to see with magnificent architecture piercing the skyline. Here, modern embraces ancient, giving visitors an insight into traditional Spain.
